Watermelon Mojito Popsicles

Well it’s the day after Valentine’s Day. Are you off of your sugar high or still calming down from all the sweet deliciousness of chocolates, caramels and toffees? I think it’s time we mix it up a little bit after all that chocolate and enjoy some fruity goodness! What do you say? Are you in? Hopefully you are! Let’s get to it!

Watermelon Mojito Popsicles

I know it’s not spring yet but hey, we can plan ahead!

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 cups cubed watermelon
  • Handful fresh mint leaves
  • 3 tablespoons agave (or you can sweeten them with regular sugar)
  • 1/2 lime
  • 2 oz. light rum (use your favorite)
  • 1/2 cup club soda
  1. In a large mixing bowl, muddle the watermelon and mint together until the watermelon is a juice consistency with some small chunks. Once it’s fully muddled, remove the muddled mint.
  2. Add the 3 tablespoons agave (or sugar), 2 ounces rum and squeeze the 1/2 lime into the watermelon juice.
  3. Pour half of the mixture into a cocktail shaker… unless you have a shaker large enough for all of the watermelon. Shake until combined and put into a separate bowl with a spout. Do the same with the other half of the juice.
  4. Add the club soda to the shaken juice and stir.
  5. Fill the popsicle tray up and add a skewer (cut to size) in the center.
  6. To garnish, place a small mint leaf in each of the popsicles. 
  7. Time for the freezer! These will need to freeze overnight because of the rum. They also melt a little faster, so make sure you serve them with a napkin!
*This could also make a very delicious refreshing cocktail!
ooooh I can taste spring already! Come on Spring! We miss you! (Well at least I miss you, A LOT!)
This is a great recipe to keep on tap as soon as spring decides to roll around. But as Mr. Groundhog unfortunately said, 6 more weeks of winter :(
ENJOY!
